with boutiques, restaurants, and cafes. hurricane sandy was devastating. the hudson river spilled into hoboken from both the north and the south. more than half of the city was flooded. three of the four firehouses and more than 7000 homes were flooded. we estimate the total damage at well over $100 million. thankfully, our main street did not flood and is open for business. even the businesses that did not flood have been severely impacted by one of our principal means of transportation to new york. the train has been flooded and still has not been restored. this is due to the difficulty of getting to and from the city. some were forced to operate at an alternate location as they tried to navigate the insurance got lead. the national flood insurance program is not designed to meet the needs of the urban environment. there is a fundamental unfairness that i respectfully ask congress to try to address. there forced to purchase flood insurance by their mortgage companies. the program treat garden style businesses as if they were basements. the direct uninsured costs are often passed on to the sm

: well, governors want the cash, and they want it right now, but if sandy rescue relief funds are coming, they will come slowly, if at all with the obama administration requesting $60 billion in post-sandy aid, but republican lawmakers want to wait until they know where each dollar is going. now, before you say, oh, this sounds cruel and awful, think of all the money we have wasted not tracking it. the money that went to haiti to help them out, and that it never really helpedded them out, and the money post-katrina that never helped anyone out in louisiana. that's why the republican idaho republicanments to do it right. it's not a crazy con -- concept, but you are taking heat for sounding heartless. how do you answer? >> it was devastating to families, businesses in the atlantic northeast, and there is emergency funding that needs to get done, done as quickly as we can do it, but there's a lot of requests in this $60 billion that the president requested, and that we have not vetted yet. we need to scrub to make sure it's targeted, it's doing the job we expect it to do, and some is more l
. any questions? >> you talked about comprehensive tax reform. >> i said katrina, not sandy. we have to address the needs. and if i just might say thank you, whoever just put that there, was that you, joe? we had to do this before. we had an impact with the disagreements between the executive branch and legislative branch. at that time it was katrina. every day that we didn't pass something for katrina was really -- caused great apprehension in that region and with individuals living there. and so same thing with sandy. where is the confidence they will get? this little bit now and this little bit now and can't spend that now. it's not only what he can spend now, it's what you can plan on now. so. so the timing is really important for sandy as well as it was when we had a similar impasse because of the iraq war that people were concerned would hold up the katrina funding. yes, ma'am. >> speaker boehner said there's no point in raising tax rates for the top 2%, including some small businesses, if you're just going to turn around next year and do comprehensive tax reform that perhaps l
